COURSE: Advanced Functions & Modeling                                 Period : 1’st ,2’nd & 3rd


PREREQUISITE: Math2 & Math 3


DESCRIPTION:   Advanced Functions and Modeling provides students an in-depth study of modeling and applying functions. Home, work, recreation, consumer issues, public policy, and scientific investigations are just a few of the areas from which applications should originate. Appropriate technology, from manipulatives to calculators and application software, should be used regularly for instruction and assessment..

COMMENTS:                1. Homework is a very important part of the learning process for mathematics.    

           Students will be given assignments to be completed outside of class.

2. Students will be able to use scientific and graphing calculators for classwork, homework, and          evaluation.

3. Students will be given opportunities to improve their problem-solving skills.


GRADE:           The final average for the each 9-weeks will be computed using the following formula:


Classwork                                                            20%

Quizzes                                                                20%

                                                     Test                                                                     40%

      are also in effect for this class.



Ø  Upon entering the room, students should

o   Get our their homework  and materials

o   Have pencils sharpened and

o   Begin working on the assignment posted on the board, overhead or desk.



Ø  Students may be asked to work together for certain assignments. At these times, students should talk quietly, work together, share materials and ideas, and stay on task.

Ø  The majority of the student’s work will be done independently. No form of communication or use of unauthorized resources during quizzes or tests will be tolerated.

Ø  Students are encouraged to ask questions and participate in discussions during class. Students should not interrupt, argue, or ignore any other person.
